Slot tester's review Kati Saari

Slot tested

Loved the critically acclaimed movie ‘The Love Guru’? Well, now you can experience all the joy, fun and laughter again by playing The Love Guru slot! It was released in 2019 by iSoftBet and with the familiar characters spinning on the reels, you will feel like watching the movie all over again.

Well… Okay, maybe I exaggerated a little. Having won three Razzies, The Love Guru was a huge flop and with barely 4 stars out of 10 in IMDB it was one of the worst anticipated comedies of the 21st century. It was written by Mike Myers and Graham Gordy, and in addition to Mr Myers, it starred big celebrity names like Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West and Jessica Simpson. However, because of how bad the movie was it’s also well-known. So, as a slot version, it instantly draws the attention with its name and also with the high RTP.

I can honestly say that I have not played iSoftBet’s slots before. And that the theme of this slot made me cringe. But, let’s not judge the book by its covers and see how the slot feels!

Graphics and sound

The Love Guru sadly looks and sounds like it was published way earlier than it really was. It looks very outdated and has that old Vegas machine vibe - especially when playing and hearing the sounds of spinning reels and beeps and boops of the buttons.

The graphics rely heavily on the movie, of course. The high-value symbols are mainly the characters from the movie, and I could even find the actual photographs of the symbols while checking the movie in the Internet Movie Database. The art style and music is, naturally, Indian-like.

The music is okay, but the loop doesn’t re-start smoothly. Otherwise, it would be nice to listen, but I chose to turn it off while I played.

Symbols and wins

The Love Guru has five reels, three rows and 30 paylines going from left to right. The winning combinations are calculated from the first reel and the symbols need to be in adjacent reels, except for bonus symbols.

High-value symbols:

  • 5 x Guru Pitka Ashram pay 33.3x your bet
  • 5 x Guru Tugginmypudha pay 26.6x your bet
  • 5 x Darren Roanoke pay 16.6x your bet
  • 5 x Dick Pants pay 10x your bet
  • 5 x Coach Punch Cherkov pay 10x your bet

Low-value symbols:

  • 5 x A or K pay 6.6x your bet
  • 5 x Q, J, 10 or 9 pay 3.3x your bet

Special symbols:

  • Wild: Substitutes all other symbols except for the Bonus symbols.
  • The Love Guru: At least three The Love Guru symbols anywhere on the reels start the Instant Bonus.
  • Bonus: At least three Bonus symbols wins the bonus game where you can win cash prizes and free spins.

Features

  • Instant bonus: Instant bonus is triggered with three or more The Love Guru symbols.

Choose three symbols and reveal a coin win.

  • Bonus: Three or more Bonus symbols activate the bonus game.

In the bonus game, you may choose boxes and reveal coin wins, free spins, multipliers and extra Wilds. You can win up to 15,000 coins from this game alone, and a maximum of 20 free spins.

  • Extended Wild: Only used during free spins. When the Wild lands on the middle reel, it extends to cover the whole reel.

My experiences

Either iSoftBet intentionally made The Love Guru look as old as it does, or their budget for the game was low. I’m kind of leaning to the latter option. I was very surprised when I found out how young this slot actually was - it came out just a year before my review.

The game works fairly simply. You can change your bet by adjusting the value of a coin and telling the game how many coins you wish to wager per payline. You can play either by clicking the buttons or tapping the space on your keyboard. Or, you can choose to let the game play by itself for a certain amount of rounds.

The game uses coins to announce the bets and wins, which I find a bit annoying. Luckily, the game also presents the actual bet in pounds just below the game screen.

After playing hundreds of spins, I found out three things worth mentioning:

  • Not once I encountered the Extended Wild. Not a single time.
  • It’s very hard to trigger any of the bonus features.
  • The winnings from the base game are small and scarce, but the bonus games can pay really well.

The Extended Wild particularly was an interesting thing. The game itself presents the feature in the starting screen, but after literally several hundreds of spins, I never saw this feature. Not in the base game, nor during the free spins. So, it remains a mystery to me.

I highly doubt that I will return to play The Love Guru again. But, for its defence, the features I did manage to activate were good and the payouts from them quite decent.

Overall rating:

3.3
